You can clean this off easily with cleaners that can be bought at your local department store.

We currently have a gray rubber flooring down and noticed that it is staining from the tires heat, being that this is a garage with show cars, we wanted to know if putting down the same rubber flooring in black would it still show heat stains from the tires?
The staining that you see on our gray rubber rolls is actually not from heat but from a chemical reaction that is happening between the tires and the roll. This is something that you would see with our light colored Nitro Rolls. If you got a Black roll, this reaction would happen, but you wouldn't see the stain because the roll is black. So, if you know you have this issue, we would recommend going with our Black Diamond Nitro Roll over any other color.

These have a very high coefficient of friction and will make it tough for things to slide around on.
